I'm trying to work out the map making tutorial here: http://www.qgistutorials.com/en/docs/making_a_map.html

When I try to export an image or pdf or even print the map I built in the composer, I receive no response, no dialog, nothing.

I tried QGIS 2.8 and 2.10. My computer is a Mac mini with OSX Yosemite and 4GB RAM. I couldn't find any log files to debug or anything.

  • I couldn't find a related bug report. Could you record a screencast of the issue or at least open a ticket on hub.qgis.org?

  • Now I could isolate the bug. The error happens when you insert a label and tick the option "Render as HTML". After that you can not export. But as soon as you uncheck that option you are able to do so again. Sep 9, 2015 at 2:57
  • I've uploaded a screencast in youtu.be/C2QZX9iSYe8 Sep 9, 2015 at 3:20
  • I've found a bug report under the title "Print Composer won't export PDF" at hub.qgis.org/issues/13143 It's the same bug, but I added more information. I hope somebody fix it. Sep 9, 2015 at 3:47
